I have managed to secure some nice red seat-belts to replace the rather dull black ones i currently have.

I am looking to try and fit these this Friday but i cant find any video instructions anywhere ? Any ideas ?

They look in good condition but I want to fully extend them to give them a clean.

However I can’t get them to extend, they lock after an inch of travel, I have them upright and tried lots of jingling but no luck.

Any ideas ?

Seat belts should have the belt wrapped around them a few times when not in the car to stop this happening .

You have to hold the belt in the same position its fitted to in the car .. you need to feed in as much of the belt as you can to release the internal lock then pull it out .

It normally works but you really have to get it all into the belt to free it off and they look pretty tight to be honest .

To fit these you need B pillar trim removed , C pillar trim and the quarter panels removed .

Pm me an email addy and i'll dig out anything i can find to help out .

I used this workshop pdf guide to replace mine. The rear's are particularly fiddly, but doable as a DIY job if you have the right tools.

Disconnect the battery until you've fully replaced, I did not need to do any PIWIS re-coding, despite what the guide suggests.

Good Luck! Thumb

Just done all mine, see here http://911uk.com/viewtopic.php?t=130851 Make sure you remove the seats, much easier job then

Re the locking you’ll find once into position they will extend immediately Thumb

Thanks for those links/hints.

I will only be changing front belts at this point so i assume no need to remove seats ?

I also dont have any pretensioner so am i right to assume there is no no need to unplug battery ?

100% remove the seats! Its a ten minute job and will make the fitment dramatically easier Thumb

They are easy to do and you really don't need to remove the seats to do it.

The rears are a right pain though.

Google it as there are loads of step by step guides.

Remember to disconnect the battery
